Maryland at Indiana
You should always watch a game involving either of these teams since even in defeat they can be tremendously fun. Therefore it stands to reason that you really ought to watch a game involving both of them. The intrigue is even higher now that Indiana has gone on the road and beaten a ranked SEC team, though it was great fun to watch the SEC droolbots quickly disassociate themselves from Mizzou by saying they never really should have been part of the conference. Close the barn door, the horses are half a mile down the road!
But I digress. It was strange the way Indiana won that game: with defense. “Indiana” and “defense” are two words seldom encountered in the same sentence, unless the word “no” (or some variation) is involved. Don’t sleep on Maryland, now or ever, but I think Indiana might actually have something like a team this year. Which must mean the Hoosiers are doomed to lose this game by 30 points.
Nah. I can trust IU for one week.
Pick: Indiana 31, Maryland 24
